this is a beautiful, sweet story- but bigger than a short story allows. I think you should take this and turn it into a novel-- you've got all your pieces there. :)

and it seems we were touched by similar verses for our stories :)

So beautiful! Such different challenges they faced back then, yet they faced them the way we should today. What a message of faith

Beautiful in the trusting sorrow. I chose Sparrow as my nickname years ago in hopes that I can be reminded to have that same outlook.

Beautiful in its melancholy voice. My favourite so far. Thanks!

You've written a beautiful characterization of a strong woman of faith in a hard land.

This made me think of my grandmother, who recently left to be with Jesus. Thank you for the lovely, poignant work.

This was a delight to read. I felt like I was reading a synopsis of a Janette Oke book. Id love to see these characters and vivid descriptions in a novel series. I wouldn't be able to pit the books down.

Wow. This is simply amazing and yes Lynn and Shann, I agree. Tis could surely needs to be made into a novel and beautifully does remind me as well of Janette Oake's talent. Congrats on your placing n win!

Such a hauntingly beautiful tale. The short entries in her journal were an apt description of her life.

I totally agree with the others that this should become a novel or a series of novels.

Congratulations on your 5th place EC win. I am going to mark your website. I have never been disappointed after reading any of your stories.
